Dear Parents and Young Actors,
Since we are heavily getting into CABLE PILOT SEASON, and
there are a BUNCH of pilots for YOUTH ORIENTED CABLE
on the table this fall, we are going to focus on AUDITIONING
FOR THE YOUTH NETWORKS this Saturday.
Who are the youth networks?
Currently DISNEY has a couple of networks, and NICKELODEON has
a couple of networks focused on the youth market, where they
have “LIVE ACTION” shows like ICARLY, VICTORIOUS, SHAKE IT UP,
A. N. T. FARM, SO RANDOM, etc….
“LIVE ACTION” means actors doing the action like in a MOVIE or
in a TV SHOW.
Both DISNEY and NICK have strong ANIMATION, too.
So the CARTOON NETWORK, which has the same demographic appeal
is now getting into the LIVE ACTION field and will be casting
pilots this fall, too.
According to press reports, they have ordered 13 new shows to
pilot, and several of those will be LIVE ACTION shows.
And they’ve hired Sharon Lieblein, the former VP of Talent
from Nickelodeon, to oversee their talent casting for their shows.
THIS IS HUGE, because that means there will be MORE shows for
young Actorsiters to star on!
Actorsiters have done FABULOUS on both DISNEY AND NICK, so now
we’ll have the CARTOON NETWORK shows to star on.
All of them take a special “HIGH ENERGY” type of acting,
and, at the Actorsite, we have had STUPENDOUS success in
teaching these skills.
SO SATURDAY WILL BE “YOUTH COMEDY” Day at the Actorsite,
where we focus on the “BIG” and on the “SKETCH COMEDY” and
on the “HAVING FUN” in our classes.
Current members, you can bring a new friend to class! NICE!
Remember, in YOUTH COMEDY, “TIMING IS EVERYTHING” and the
only way to become strong with comedic timing is to practice.
SATURDAY CLASSES ARE GREAT PRACTICE!
